The 2020 Loureiro is dry (with 3.5 grams of residual sugar and 7.2 of total acidity). There is no fizz and it comes in at 11.9% alcohol. Gloriously alive and aromatic in its youth (seen with about six weeks in bottle), this is a nice vintage here, especially in its youth. Perky, bright and a little spicy, this overachieves, at least at the moment. I do always wonder if it is safe to age them very long. Most won't care, as the bottles will be gone by this summer. That's probably a good plan, even if not absolutely required. What this does best is be exuberantly fresh. Don't waste that. The price is very nice as well. At the moment, it seems like a steal. ...

Fresh and elegant aroma, with citrus and floral notes combined with a pronounced minerality and long intense finish.

Country: Portugal

One of the oldest regions of Portugal for wine production and vine cultivation is the Bairrada, the lush and clay-rich region responsible for an impressive range of red, white and rosé wines of exceptional quality. As with much of the country, this region benefits from long, hot summers, allowing the grapes to ripen to full maturity and thus carry a wide range of flavors and aromas. However, each region of Portugal produces wines which reach a high level of quality, from the more urbanized regions around Lisbon and Porto, where the famous fortified and Colares wines originate, to the island of Madeira and the Dao river valley, which each have their own distinctive wine cultures. The several thousand years of viticultural history in Portugal has allowed Portuguese wineries to master their own traditional techniques, which are still employed to this day across the country, yielding excellent results for the world to enjoy.
